I'm more selective now about the stuff I do use. It has to be effective in small amounts and to smell good. I was already familiar with Oribe Signature shampoo and conditioner. They are excellent and I use the shampoo quite often (the conditioner only comes in a 6.8 tube which lasts about two weeks and costs twice as much as the L'Occitane conditioner that comes in the same size), so I decided to try Oribe Shine Supershine Moisturizing Cream, a leave-in conditioner.
Right now it's my favorite product in this category (but I'm notoriously fickle about this kind of stuff). It's the perfect weight for this time of the year- gives just the right amount of moisture but not too greasy/heavy. The shine and smoothness are just as promised, and while I haven't straightened my hair recently, I have a feeling it would be a great help in that department. The scent is the same as the other Oribe products I've tried- very much like a flat version of Uncle Serge's Nuit de Cellophane. And that's a very good thing.
Bottom line: Next on my hair agenda is trying their moisture hair musk.
Oribe Shine Supershine Moisturizing Cream ($49) is available from select salons, top department stores and oribe.com. I bought mine at Bergdorf Goodman.
